Park Nights 2016

7 Jun 2016 - 8:00 PM to 23 Sep 2016 - 10:00 PM

Between June and September 2016, Serpentine Galleries presents Park Nights, an annual series of live art, dance, poetry, music, film, literature, performance and theory. Participants have been invited to devise new, site-specific live works for the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). In these multidisciplinary encounters with the structure, the Park Nights series proposes compelling, new ways to encounter architecture. Seeking the agency and performative potentials embedded in the live, this year’s programme addresses affect, rituals and revolts.
